February’s edition of Vineyard Magazine featured a very apt round-up of three of the UK’s best Sparkling Rosés by renowned wine writer Matthew Jukes. The Langham Team were delighted to see the image of our Sparkling Rosé front and centre in the feature, accompanied by some very kind words from Matthew.
“Made using 6% red wine and 15% reserve wine, this is one of the most harmonious and silky rosé wines in the UK. The overall blend is 46% Pinot Noir, 18% Pinot Meunier and 36% Chardonnay, all taken from the Crawthorne Vineyard, and the base vintage is 2018. There is very much a 2018 juiciness about this wine which brings thrilling harmony and uncommon succulence. There is also a very low dosage here of 3g/L, and I imagine this is because the fruit is so pliable and welcoming.Matthew Jukes, Vineyard Magazine, 2022
If you are a fan of tender, smooth elegant wines, you will find it hard to better this fabulous creation. Langham tends to keep a fairly low profile and yet every time I encounter these wines I am delighted and am reminded that they are very much a hidden gem in our wine landscape.”
Decanter, the world’s leading wine media brand, have also featured a selection of top Sparkling Rosés for Valentine’s Day from around the world, and quoted Langham Head Winemaker Tommy Grimshaw on his ethos when it comes to making a world class sparkling rosé.
‘My goal is to make a wine with texture, complexity and a hint of tannin that drives the front palate. With a distinct creaminess that can add weight and expressiveness.’ For him, a rosé is not simply ‘a wine you must have in your range’, it is a ‘serious wine in its own right’ especially suited for a variety of food pairings.”Ines Salpico, Decanter, 2022
